Northwest Missouri State University music faculty will again kick off a season of exciting performances at the University with their annual Labor Day trumpet recital.

Professor of Music Dr. William Richardson and accompanist Dr. Jiwon Choi will take the stage with the Northwest Trumpet Ensemble and special guests at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. The recital is free and open to the public.

The program will feature music by Eugene Bozza, Eric Ewazen, Claude Debussy, Joseph Turrin, Tim Minchin, Erroll Garner and Zequinha de Abreu.

“We are very excited to perform some really amazing music,” Richardson said. “Although there is no theme for this performance, the repertoire selection is quite diverse and there is something for everyone.”

A member of the St. Joseph Symphony and the St. Joseph Big Band, Richardson is Northwest’s Dennis C. Dau Professor of Instrumental Music in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts. He teaches trumpet and various music courses at the University, in addition to directing the jazz ensembles. He joined the Northwest faculty in 1999.

Choi joined the Northwest music faculty in 2016 after completing a graduate teaching assistantship at the University of Kansas. She consistently garners high marks in international competitions, and her performances as a soloist and a collaborative pianist have spanned venues throughout the world.
